Making Movies

The kids are having fun with AP exams behind them. For some extra credit, they made a movie, or rather a parody, about the Cuban Missile Crisis: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LZcBBmUaU8 direct link] It's a bit long -- it takes time and effort to make things short -- but they shot it in 2 days (after giving all to the rugby game) and Max has been staying up late editing. I was the one shooing him off to bed last night. Enjoy!!!

Gosh, I can't wait until we can make some movies together. I really must learn screen-writing. Max has a great eye.

I would not have wanted to go through the real stressful thing again, but I'd love to see the movie ;)

Awesome. We're trying out our video skills on a book trailer. I hope we can finish it soon. Nice for your kids to be at this point in school.

Mirka, I added a link.
Johnell, book trailers are hard: like writing flap copy!!! I found making movies is a great way to teach the kids storyboarding. Max and Dagny made a movie of The City of Ember: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47LgqU_uPUk
